Speaking to /Film, Thor: The Dark World and Game Of Thrones director Alan Taylor insisted that while his involvement in in Terminator 5 is still officially a rumour, he’s been looking at Batman Begins for inspiration.

“We all love the first two, and I actually went back and watched them again, and my respect level only went up,” said Taylor. “I think there is another famous franchise that had a wonderful beginning and then turned a little bananas…

“Tim Burton’s first Batman is just glorious and by the time it got around to nipples on costumes and all that stuff it sort of lost its way. And for [Christopher] Nolan to come in an say ‘I respect this material so much I’m going to take it up to *here,* that’s a great inspiration.’ I think any version, whoever is directing Terminator, would be very respectful and serve the first two and probably feel a bit more freedom by the end.”
